My partner and I are thinking of moving to Australia from Ireland for good. We lived in Sydney for a year. Whilst we really loved Sydney, the reality is it's not very affordable to live there long term. I wasn't too keen on moving to Melbourne either. I've been to Perth and quite enjoyed the laid back lifestyle. So my question is, what's the 'gay life' like for Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane? I presume Brisbane would be a less busy cosmopolitan city than Sydney but I stand corrected. Whilst I am not very openly gay, I would like to feel comfortable holding my partner's hand on the street. Thanks!

There seems to be a small but tight-knit community here. It's not unusual to see gay couples in some of the inner suburbs, and there are a few establishments where the GLBT community hang out. I think you'll have few problems with discrimination aside from the usual type.

Indeed. Speaking with a gay work collegue about this a few weeks ago,he more or less what was written in the above letter.

Gay life in Perth is quite home based,perhaps not so interesting for those under say 40,but okay for those with a partner,wanting a slower life.

He moved over from Sydney owing to cost about ten years back,before Perths massive price increase.

Not sure why you rule out Melbourne as two of his gay friends moved over there several months back and latest news he got was neither intend moving back to Perth.
My own thinking would be that Perth is rather mainstream and perhaps limited in scope for a lot of individuals and would decide on the East Coast,if was thinking of coming to Oz, gay or straight,it wins out if only on virture of choice.
Good Luck.
